Cruise across the Bay of Biscay and day sail down the coast of Spain and Portugal to Marina de Lagos. Three weeks of sailing to the sun, tours and parties.
More than simply a voyage south to the sun, ARC Portugal appeals to summer cruisers, boats heading to the Mediterranean and to ARC participants. Social activities in every port and visits ashore to explore ancient Iberian cities and fishing villages make the rally a real holiday.
Invite a range of family and friends to join your adventure - day sails and great transport links make crew changes easy. The mix of people makes ARC Portugal a friendly and convivial summer cruise.
“The banter, the laughs, the story-swapping - you would be hard pushed to beat this experience”
